Caesar is such an amazing soul who is so deserving of his very own forever family. Most of his life thus far has consisted of being bounced around homes. Each of these times has been through no fault of his own. He has even had a short stint at an animal shelter.
Caesar’s foster was contacted about a dog that was quickly deteriorating in the shelter (Dutch Shepherds are known for high kennel anxiety). The foster reported that they have experience with the breed so decided to go and take a look. She was told that he was dog aggressive, especially with males, not good with cats or kids; already not a promising start as they had one in every category at their house. She arrived at the shelter with her toddler and both of her male dogs, one calm and the other a high energy, obnoxious puppy, for a meet and greet. They walked into the kennel area and spotted him immediately. He was the dog pacing, jumping off the walls and frantically barking; he was beyond stressed. He also weighed in at 60lbs when he should easily weigh at least 80lbs. They all went into the play yard for the meet and greets and Caesar was amazing! No signs of aggression, even in a high stress environment. After working with Caesar for several months, he is a healthy weight. Now Caesar is ready for his forever home.
Now for the particulars, Caesar is an approximately 3yr old Dutch Shepherd. He currently lives with 3 other dogs, a cat and a toddler; he especially seems to enjoy being around children. He is crate and potty trained and knows basic obedience. He enjoys going for adventures with the family: walks, hikes, the store, etc. He LOVES kongs and tennis balls. He’s a big fan of mealtime and treats. One thing that has always impressed his foster mom is how quickly he adapts to new or constantly changing environments; like a house with a toddler and his toys. He really just wants to be wherever his people are and he is all about snuggling! Despite everything he’s been through he remains a loving and loyal companion. He does exhibit some stress initially when adjusting to a new family, but with time, patience and security he adapts and thrives.
